I purchased this book to help me figure out some of The Eagles' greatest guitar lines. Unfortunately, the tab doesn't seem very accurate / authentic to me - I've seen videos of the Eagles perfoming many of these tunes, and their hands are in different positions on the neck - compared to what this book says.

The tabs are relatively close, but for someone like me who likes to get the parts bang on - esp. for the intro of a song like "Hotel California" - there are lots of small differences that all add up to the music being incorrectly transcribed. It seems to me that the music in this book was transcribed on a piano, and then converted into guitar tab.... just my 2 cents.

The foreword is an interesting read, with Don Henley and Glenn Frey adding insight into each of the tunes, although having also just read the Don Felder book "My Life In The Eagles" (which was a GREAT read IMO), their words seem somewhat hollow.... at least to me.

Overall, this book is a fair transcription of the material - I just wish the publisher Cherry Lane offered one like it !

I love the Eagles and like to bang around on the keyboard a little, so I bought this song book. It has the chords with the music and I can play the songs! What's not to like? I bought the CD a long time ago and was thrilled that I could get the song book, too.

Uh, big problem. The music shown via Amazon's "Look Inside" feature is not the same as what is in this book !

What a huge disappointment !

Format: Paperback
I play the piano, and I know it says all this stuff about how it's for guitar, but there was nothing else that had all of the Eagle's new songs. So I got this. When I first opened it, I was very disappointed because the actual sheet music only contained the treble and there wasn't any bass. I guess it really is for guitar and singing. But, there is hope for you piano players! I realized that you can play the songs like chord charts! Just use the chords shown for the guitar and you can play around with the chords to make it sound exactly like the song! There are some chords I'd never heard of before, though. So, Piano players definitely can play the songs but I wouldn't recommend it for beginners partly because you might not know how to play chord charts and partly because, even if you do know how to play chord charts, some of the chords are VERY tricky. In all, I'm happy I made the purchase.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book mainly to learn the slide part to "Heartache Tonight." The first page (pg. 266) has the slide guitar tuned to E-B-E-G-B-E, which is not quite an open-E tuning, but rather a cross-note E tuning. Duly tuned, I forged ahead, only to realize after much frustration that the tuning actually IS an open-E tuning. So, as noted by an earlier reviewer, there are typos, and this was a major one.

Nonetheless, after adjusting the tuning, I found the tablature to be accurate and informative. Other songs proved to be worth the money, too, so I am giving it a 4-star rating. Worth the investment, but be aware of the occasional typo, especially the tuning for guitar #3 on Heartache Tonight.

The best song book I have ever purchased. Accurate, note for note transcriptions of the Eagles' classics. Do your self a favor and get the companion CD as well. If you want to learn a few Eagles songs, this is the book for you.

Faithful to the records, but probably not for beginners. I only purchased this book because it had specific songs I wanted to learn. As a result, I now have songs I wasn't particularly interested in.

I really love the eagles and love this book. A few of the songs are written a little oddly, such as the intro to hotel california, but it is still a really great book.
